I am the Founder, Owner, and Director of Medicine Wheel Wellness and co-own Excel Physical Therapy, the initial therapeutic service that set the foundation for Medicine Wheel Wellness. My practice as a Physical Therapist, Athletic Trainer, and Yoga Instructor coupled with a passion for travel led into deeper studies in the healing methods of global and local cultures. I believe to achieve optimal health and wellness it requires a holistic approach with a balance of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of life.

For those with chronic low back pain, several studies suggest yoga as an effective treatment among other benefits such as improved mood, stress reduction, and lower healthcare costs. With low back pain as the most common cause of pain in the United States and back injury as the leading and most expensive cause of workers’ compensation claims (Boston Medical Center) it’s no wonder yoga has become a saving grace for some as a cost effective alternative to other treatment.
Join us for this educational and movement based class to increase awareness and attention to your "Back Body". Release stress, compression, and tension, improve mobility, stability, coordination, balance, and strength to decrease pain, prevent injury, and enhance sports performance for better function and a more fulfilling life.
